I'm a player, not a collector. My new years resolution was to build into Legacy so I purchased two Cavern of Souls online to go alongside the two I own. My own two are on the left, the purchased two on the right. I noticed the colour of the new two is slightly darker than my previous two so did a light test (the light is much brighter through my previous two than the new copies).
I still wasn't sure so a friend used an electronic microscope to look at the previous and purchased, comparison shots of both, plus the results of the light test are in the album below:- https://imgur.com/a/sxE7vnL
I'm new to encountering counterfeit cards and no expert so cannot conclude either way. I am throwing this open to the community and hope some of you would be able to assist and point out what you use to check.
- I always use buyer protect when purchasing cards online so I feel quite safe as to my investment in either outcome.
Thanks in advance for the help.
but the clearest difference to me can be seen in the set symbol
one was printed together with the rest and the other one seems to be printed after the rest (where i think thats the original, right ? since i doubt a counterfiter would invest in a more complex printing process)
but i think u should wait for an opinion of a more qualified person
